People often ask me (kirupa) about how to
contribute to the site, where to help out, etc. The following is a small
list of information and links that will help you to better help others and
the site by sharing your talents to the entire kirupa.com Community.
- Writing Tutorials
If you have a topic that you believe should be covered but isn't
currently on the site, feel free to write a tutorial on it! You will get
full credit for writing the tutorial, and there is a tutorial template
that will help get you started and format the tutorials to the style
used on the site. Click here for more information.
- Creating Graphics
There can never be too many kirupa.com 'link to us' graphics, kirupa.com
buddy icons, forum smilies, etc.

on how you can use your graphical talents to help make this site more
fun and pixelated!
- Helping on the Forums
Every day numerous questions on various topics ranging from ActionScript
to XML to Graphic Design are answered by some helpful people. I am sure
they wouldn't mind some extra fingers typing up some extra help!
- Judging Contests
The site hosts a few contests every year, and we are always on the
lookout for judges who can help pick the winners from a collection of
great entries. While you can't participate in the contest if you are a
judge, you do get to have a say in picking the entries that everyone
else will vote on.
- Pointing out Errors
Tattling does pay off! In a site as large as the kirupa.com site, random
errors, broken image links, spelling errors, and various other
inconsistencies could go unnoticed by our team of extremely trained
We appreciate you pointing them out to us, and
we won't be offended either! It's a win-win situation for you.
